Nursing as a profession is riddled with many risks.Ill patients who require medication and treatment which have both benefits and side effects, Clinical situations which are open-ended and highly variable.(Benner,Malloch & Sheets 2010, p.6)All these requires nurses to have education and standards designed to protect and provide guidance in their scope of nursing.
One factor that determines the scope of nursing is the Nurse’s practice Act(NPA). The NPA has a Board of Nursing(BON) that develops rules and regulations to govern Nursing.These rules undergo a public vetting and then they are made into laws.(NCSBN 2011a Ridenour & santa Anna,2012p.504)These rule are customized for each state.Its the refore the nurse’s resposibility to be aware of their domain of practice as it pertains their state.
Each hospital has different cadres of Nursing and there are different roles each nurse plays depending with the years of experience.Some procedures can only be carried out by the more experienced nurses like being in charge of a shift and not by graduate nurses.
Another factor that determines a nurse’s scope of practice is their level of education,for example a nurse practitioner can prescribe treatment and assist with surgeries whereas an Rn will basically carry out the orders set aside by physicians.My advice to all nurses is to familiarize themselves with the set rules by their BON and hospital to avoid crossing the gap between what is lawful and thats which is illegal.
